It will always be a great community for sure. The site is showing it's age for sure. The platform it is on is Ning and they just got bought out so hopefully the new company will make Ning better and maybe we can update the site to be more mobile friendly and other things.
Fair enough :) Busking with your brother & friend sounds good - a little extra income is always welcome!
Do you still have that chav friend - and has he stayed or gone away from chavdom style? Here, in the countryside, it seems like chav has disappeared. Though, then again, I haven't seen any punks or other mohawks either for a long time either! ^_^
Yes it has become, one active & a couple returners. I find even the new joiners don't bother replying if you welcome them or ask something about their profile. Same with Happy Birthdays. So, I no longer make the effort, but you did guess right, I do still live and reply. :) There's still signs GMM keeps an eye on the site - with the 'featured' photos. We've nearly reached the 5000th (idle) member! =D
It's a shame, folk don't seem to care to post stuff here much. Now, everyone is falling the trend and just expecting things to happen when they stay as onlookers instead. heh Doesn't work, that, though. :)
My YouTube still goes, still get life there. :)
I'm doing okay, still much the same as usual, a bit lazy about putting up the 'hawk though. How about you? Still rocking the spikes over there in Ireland?
lol Oh, all the old chestnuts I've heard them all used before. I've used black eye-shadow my sister gave me to darken my eye sockets - as you know from my pics, I like face-paints. My goal was to look scary with it. haha That's what appeals to me, but my family got all worried and tried to talk me out of using it.
No one ever said anything anyway the few times I bothered going out with it on. heh Storm in a tea-cup.
I just recently learnt what the word 'neurosis' meant: someone perceiving an "Invisible Injury" and that's what your pal and so many folk get over anything different. Be that eyeliner or making up like a monster, or even for my liking someone's trainers/boots. They get all worried, like it's causing them an invisible anguish, just cause it's strange or doesn't fit their preconceptions.
They have no reasons for feeling that way, but in time, they get to know better and then don't understand why they ever felt that way in the first place! I've actually had friends tell me that 6 months to a year later, but it takes them ages to get over their neurotic worries. They just need to drop their imagined fears and accept reality, rather than hyping it up or expecting something else. But then again, I get misconstrued by all sides. :) Ah, well, all you can do is be yourself and enjoy looking how you want to.
